Rochester Optical has announced that they will offer a prescription lens for Google Glass even before Google is able to do so. Rochester Optical’s system will use a Glass Prescription Lens Carrier (GPLC) that clips onto the bridge of the frames and will contain the prescription lens. This will make it easy to move Google Glass to different lenses.
Rochester Optical will sell the carrier for $129 and a single-vision lens will start at $99. Other lens options like bi-focals, transitions, and tinted lens will be available. The carrier itself will be available in eight shapes and a variety of colors like black, white, red, orange, cyan, royal blue, silver and grey. Rochester Optical says they will be able to start taking orders in late January and will start shipping units early next month.
Rochester Optical will be at CES 2014 this week. Be sure to check back here at TalkAndroid for all of our coverage and to see if we get some hands-on time with this new option for Google Glass.
